This is a really big deal. Yowza. You all got enough coverage to fix all the major routes pretty quickly?

But I am not sure how practical it would be. And this is how it should work in the interest of all Waze community..

This was answered several times in the Google joins Waze thread: No. Google maps and Waze are separate products and there is no plan to merge them. Three years from now is a different story.

Looks like we will be forced to start from scratch in all the Indian Cities. :(
At least the Road categorisation is in place. But will it stay ? :?

We anticipate that the replacement of the map will be delayed once again.
Our current estimation is that the replacement will take place in the next couple of days.


Thanks,

Thanks Ori. One of my biggest wishes of road alignment seem to have been granted. Woohoo!

However, I do have a few questions.

The city names, at least for new Delhi, is written in hindi script. I presume changing them to English or keeping them like this would be a call taken by Indian wazers, or is there a standard we need to follow?


Indian Wazers will take a call on this Abhijit..

You need to use the Highlighter script please..

Seems things are getting messed up. I will be going to OSM for my mapping contribution, but will still use waze to help other wazers(if any in Bangalore, I dont see much of them though)! It was good time here, driving 300+km just within a month. Have good times ahead folks...
